Autorox's Best Musclecar ??

Is anybody actually watching Autorox?
The nominees were:
Audi A4
Dodge Charger
Ford Rustang...er, I mean Mustang GT
Corvette ZO6
Chrysler 300C or was it M..either way, it's a luxury car, not a musclecar?

Anyway, it seems to me that they forgot something.
These IDIOTS chose the Charger AND the Mustang over the Z06. Did they even DRIVE these cars? How could they FORGET the GTO?!? I'll admit, it's not the media's darling like the sissified Mustang, but last time I checked, the new Mustang wasn't even a freakin' musclecar...it's a PONYCAR. Where else can you get 400 horsepower for $30k, besides the GTO?

Wake up Spike!!

I haven't seen the show..but..

From what you said, not only was the GTO not in consideration, but..

AUDI A4?? On a muscle car list? What on earth?

Audi A4--engines: Turbo 4 or a V6. FWD or AWD. And this classifies as a muscle car, how?

*shakes head*

At least all the other choices are V8/RWD.

Who cares.... let those Charger and Mustang guys pull up next to my GTO and will see who has the better muscle car. In fact, I just got a new idea for my license plate:

HEMI KLR

That was the Audi S4 not the A4. Still not a real muscle car either way.

Thus far, it's been a celebration of hip-hop, tuner cars/ricers and the overglorified Mustang GT. If you're not interested in any of those things, there's really not much to watch.

Same way with the 300C
